CLARA, to thee hath lib'ral Nature giv'n
Fancy's bright ray, with Beauty's charms combin'd;
And ev'ry attribute which fav'ring Heav'n
Gives t' ennoble or adorn the mind.
If e'er, for suff'ring excellence, thy heart
Hath heav'd th' enanguish'd sigh, or prompt the tear;—
To OWEN'S fate the tribute the tribute due impart,
And to thy kindred soul fair ELLEN'S woes endear.
When to Love's universal pow'r you bow,
May your best, tend'rest wish, the youth approve;
Propitious stars confirm the mutual vow,
And ELLEN'S beauty crown Nithsdale's love.
